Hilton London Bankside The design of the restaurant and bar mirrors that of the wider hotel, reflecting the history and ambiance of the surrounding urban area. Exposed metal screens, bare brick work, reprocessed tube station tiles and bespoke joinery all feature, with furnishings of rich fabrics, inspired by William Morris, to create a style-led space for a relaxing yet stimulating dining experience. The colour scheme features greens, mustard yellows and browns which matches the seltzer bottles decorating the bar and the large, modern copper sheet sculpture located on the stairs to the Ballroom. Sculptures by British artist, David Farrer, accentuate the interior design while reclaimed ceilings and murals have been designed especially for the hotel’s public spaces. A spectacular Penny Wall will be installed in the entrance of The Distillery, featuring penny coins dating back to the 1860s. Spaces will be kept free for special guests and dignitaries to mark their visit to the hotel by placing their own pennies onto the structure. Hilton London Bankside offers the perfect base for exploring the city, just steps away from the Tate Modern and is the ideal destination for business and leisure travellers as well as London locals and Bankside residents seeking a new destination bar and restaurant, serving locally inspired cuisine.
